It sounds like Blockbuster is about to jack their prices up.

It might be time for you Blockbuster guys to come back over. Wink


I think this is the most noteworthy statement in that article:
Quote:
Spokeswoman Karen Raskopf also declined to disclose which current customers will see price hikes other than saying, "We are taking into account the profitability of individual subscribers."

Blockbuster lost half a million online customers in the July-September quarter. Chief Executive James W. Keyes said last month that many of those subscribers were costing his company more than they were worth.


Although Netflix is experiencing a short-term boost from this news, they could also decide to devise ways to improve the cost-effectiveness of individual subscribers. I'm thinking in particular of some of us on this board who are prone to churning a lot of movies per month... Shocked




Shhhhhhhhhhh

Note I initially held back from saying
"those of us who regularly return 3 (or 4) movies in the same envelope"

I'm on 2 at a time, well now, 1 at a time, since I split up my queue so my kid has 1 at a time. I tend to get them back rather quickly. I'll watch the one I received today later and get it back tomorrow.

I just signed up for the 1 at a time but unlimited per month. I'm on the 14 day trial for starters.

Do Saturday count towards mailing?

Thnx.

Depending upon where your distribution center is located, the should receive your mailing on Monday, if you mailed it Saturday, and have a replacement in your mailbox on Tuesday. The distribution center I mail to is very close to where I live and when I return a video, within 2 days I have a replacement. Look at your mailer and see where you're mailing to.

I've been a Netflix member since they had a "regular" rent-and-return policy. Eventually they went to the "at-a-time" model and dragged us with them.

So I've been at 4 at a time since that was the only plan. I guess I'm paying what others pay for 3 at a time these days, so I'm in golden handcuffs on that - if I up- or downgrade I'll loose the grandfather status.

Bobaloo-

I definately recommend giving your kid her own queue - you can throttle her to one at a time and she can't mess with the order of yours. My wife and I have three, one disc at a time for her, one at a time for me, and two at a time for our "joint" queue. I'm switching back to two at a time for me, as I go through them a lot faster, she doesn't like watching TV and I can't think of anything better in life! Embarassed


barnz,

thank you for that suggestion. I never thought of looking to see if that could be done. I've set it up and now she gets 1 DVD at a time and we get 1. If she is late in returning, she has to deal with it. I stayed with the 2 at a time, if I see we'll be watching more, I'll change to 3 at a time.

The mailer does show the center is in my St. Louis metro area.
